I am taking my dog to be euthanized tomorrow. This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I am crying as I write this. This is also supposed to be a professional blog, but screw it, there’s a human being behind the professional and this human is in need of a little “writing therapy”.

She would turn fourteen next July. When I got her, my wife and I had been dating for one year. I have turned from a careless young man into a father of three, with quite a few adventures along the way. She was always there.

My daughters will come home from school shortly, and we’re going to tell them. They will get to say goodbye to their friend.

I cannot imagine a strongest, purest kind of friendship and loyalty. I will always remember my truest friend. Rest in peace.

Please give your dog a hug for me today.
